Often people opt for the AEC Collection when renewing their subscription, but we find users tend to stick with the applications they know and trust - AutoCAD, Revit etc. Below is a guide to the other applications which can help drive efficiency, collaboration and workflow.
So what does the new AEC Collection include, and what advantages do each of these offerings bring to your construction project?
